You Can't Fail The Test Because There Isn't One - Grasshopper
TRUE or FALSE: One belief that will keep you glued to the exam chair is that Fate or God or some other all encompassing force is testing you. The answer to that question is always TRUE because, frankly, Fate/God/Reality/(insert your euphemism here) doesn’t care.
When something goes awry in your life, the easiest and most ineffective conclusion to come to is that you are being tested. There is no exam.
“No, you’re wrong, God is testing me.” That belief is more than urban legend; it’s a global myth – one that keeps you stuck.
The quickest way to delay any pursuit to a solution of your situation is to travel down the side road that suggests that some cosmic entity is setting up roadblocks to see how you handle them.
The roadblocks weren’t sent to you, they just happened.
How well you respond to roadblocks will, in fact, reveal your godly creativity, but it won’t prove that they were specifically addressed to you.
If you believe they were sent, that’s your ego telling you how special you are that God would care enough to send you this dilemma. And as long as you are so special, you’ll keep attracting the same predicaments over and over again.
Believing that you get some kind of brownie point for passing this test is just conditioned creosote clogging your cosmic pipeline giving you yet another fire to put out.
The end game of this philosophy seems to be that you have to earn your way into heaven in an afterlife by passing these tests.
Solving problems is a handy skill to have, but you elongate the time they hang around by distracting yourself with the notion that God thinks you need to be tested. There’s not a lot of heavenly peace in that conviction. In fact, that belief only justifies that you deserve problems and it will continually send them to you in God’s name.
If you’re human, problems will present themselves. Solve them or don’t solve them. That’s why you were given creativity. If successful, your reward will be an earthly one, not a checkmark on an “Entrance to Heaven” exam.
The real test is to see how well you do in this life. You get to take it every day. If you react poorly to your challenges, welcome to hell. If you engage your God given talent to creatively respond, you have found heaven on earth.
All the best,
